 Yes, that was all.

I thought it was almost default...  Then I'll make complete
diff to 2.2.1 kernel from samba and put it later on 
But please note that
 - it is minimal workaround and should not be used for long time
 - ultraATA chip(CMD646) driver has not been ported yet, so that
   if you need it, you have to rewrite yourself. But usual ATA bus,
   which CDROM is connected, does work.
 - it is a diff to kernel 2.2.1, not to latest one
